Leveraging Pay-Per-Click to be Found on Page 1 is Critical
Studies have shown that 93% of people do not look past the first page of search results when they search on Google, Yahoo and MSN. If they do not find what they want, they simply do another search or give up completely. The engines allow advertisers to bid on Pay-Per-Click listings that feature them at the top of the listings. Being found on the second page will only get you 7% of searchers; page three sees only 1%.
This raises a critical issue: you must be seen to be found; you must be found to get the clicks; you must get the clicks to secure new business. Identifying the right keywords and listing them in a managed pay-per-click campaign is essential to driving revenue and achieving a solid ROI.

Experienced Pay Per Click Management Helps You Succeed
With so much competition and so much riding on search, experienced Pay Per Click management can help you succeed online. Today, your competition is actively bidding on keywords, driving up prices, and grabbing market share. Without professional PPC management, you are literally throwing money at search, hoping to win the game.
Did you know most campaigns contain at least 40% waste? A campaign with a budget of $20,000 can be throwing away $8,000 every month - $96,000 every year - on keywords that do not drive sales or leads. The problem is either you do not have enough keywords and are missing those that drive inexpensive conversions, you have too many keywords and do not know which are wasteful, or have a reasonable number of keywords but are unable to track and optimize the spend.
Suppose we identified and cut that $8,000 in waste. That's $96,000 to the bottom line.
But what if we put that $8,000 back into the campaign and spent it on the right keywords. You could increase your sales by 66% for the same monthly spend!
